Emergency and Prayer



In this photo are Jim and Karen Allen. They go to church at Chestnut Ridge Church in Morgantown. For several years they have led an international student Bible study in Morgantown.

Yesterday they were on a hike with one of their three children, Jacob. Jacob was hiking with his parents yesterday and got separated from them. Search and rescue teams (including dogs) are scouring the woods looking for any sign of Jacob. The Associated Press issued this release.

I am writing this to ask you to pray for Jacob and his family. Pray that God would allow the rescue teams to find favor and Jacob would be found. Pray that God would comfort the family in this time of crisis.

Billy,
Thank you for going to help. I've been in prayer since Karen called me at 8am this morning. Jacob is a special, sweet-spirited young man but he loves to walk and can bolt away quickly. God knows where he is and we must cry out to the Lord to continue to protect him. God be with you, Adam and Len during your search.

My fellow prayer warriors from work and beyond are answering the call. However, I've been informed that the link does not work. I checked, both from the Email I sent and from your blog, and I was unable to bring up the article. What's the latest status?
